about

Snowflake is the brainchild of renowned producer/mixer D. James Goodwin.

In 2012, after a decade of innovative work with artists like Kaki King, Murder by Death, Bobby, Norah Jones, The Bravery and Devo, Goodwin began work on his own project—a collection of songs that grew from a seed to a forest, from a spot of rain into a hurricane, a project of grand vision and atmosphere.

Holed up in The Isokon, his own studio in the Catskills, Goodwin wrote and recorded the entire debut LP by himself, not another soul in sight.

Combining the dynamic tension of bands like Mogwai, with the size and shape of Pink Floyd, Snowflake is not a quiet journey; Snowflake is art-rock at its darkest, its most sophisticated and its most explosive…in technicolor.

Known for his irreverent approach toward recording, Goodwin bore down through late 2012 with his collection of strange and unusual implements and in early 2013 he completed a debut LP entitled We All Grow Toward The Sea, a nine song collection chronicling the deep confusions and pressures of modern life; a concept record without dogma; a cinematic display of pop sensibility with volume and scope.

Track Name: Bombs
bombs away
we’ll open up our wounds today
the celebration waits.…. the celebration waits
bombs away
our mothers lay new rules today
the children wet their feet.… the children wet their feet
stay inside, stay inside
can.’t we just shut the doors and lock the noise outside
this conversation is going nowhere
we.’ve got no time
ill plead my ignorance and oretend that its alright
that im home now
i can sleep
ill wear your love as if id never wake again
id sleep the sleep of bloodied soldiers
wasting no time
we can.’t escape the noise and darkness in our minds
so we.’re free
bombs away
we.’ll open up our wounds today
the celebration waits.…. the celebration waits
stay inside, stay inside
Track Name: Hurricane
i guess this is over
but we had a good run, didn't we?
the easiest way that we learn to escape is to swallow it down
the party is over
the gifts and the patience could never relieve
the guilt on your shoulders, the weight of defeat
the weight of the air
just like a candle in thew eye of a hurricane
(this flame will never dull)
just like the ashes in the boxes that never came
(this fate will never know)
just like a candle in the eye of a hurricane
(this flame will never dull)
well it's finally over
the statue of lies has been cut at the knees
pick up the pieces and toss them away
and we swallow it down
i'm starting this over now
you're safe from the violence of things left unsaid
turn your machines on and bury your head
i'm tearing this whole thing down
just like a candle in thew eye of a hurricane
(this flame will never dull)
just like the the handful of the promises we both made
(this fate will never know)
just like a candle in the eye of a hurricane
(this flame will never dull)
i guess this is over
we had a good time, didn't we?
turn your machines on and bury your head
i'm putting you down
Track Name: Fifteen Degrees And the Sea Is Quiet
they're selling this place and all your dreams
down the river
they're moving this place and all its weeds
away, forever
they're selling this place and all your dreams
down the river
it's fifteen degrees and the sea is quiet now
not for long
good luck captain
you'll change course, soon enough
you'll face north, soon enough
Track Name: Black Stars
what if black stars made up the sky
and the whole world refused to believe you?
what if there was no outer space?
would you carry on?
what if i had just a little more time?
and i could show you a world that revolves around you
what if there was no other place?
could you carry on?
just five long hours
i swear that's all i really need
just to keep this beast from breaking me before i stop
just five long hours
there's just no use in getting older
there's just no use in getting older without you
what if we gave it one more try
'cause everyone but me will destroy you
what if there was no other way?
could you carry on?
what if these lights go out tonight
and these machines set out to ignore you?
what if there were no games to play?
would it turn you on?
just five long hours
i swear that's all i really need
just to keep this beast from breaking me before i stop
just five long hours
i swear that's all and you can leave
just to keep this beast from breaking me before i....
Track Name: Initials
if i could, i'd burn this house down sugar
if i could, i'd stay up late
if i could, i'd let you lean on me sunshine
if you could, i'd stand up straight
if i could, i'd watch your eyes while you're sleeping
if you could, i'd keep you safe
if i could, i'd build this world up around you
if you could, i'd make you home
this vein won't stop bleeding
this page won't stop turning
these bones won't stop until it's too late
if i could, i'd let you keep your initials
if you could, they'd never change
if i could, i'd soak you all in sunshine
if you could, i'd never wait
this vein won't stop bleeding
this page won't stop turning
these hands won't stop ever needing
this soul won't stop until it's too late or these bones find you
please don't be too late when these bones find you
Track Name: Defeat At the Hands Of An Amateur
long nights, restless days, and high hopes
trenches so deep i could hide my head in my sleep
cruel joke, this game we play where no one wins
but tested we stand on our own sides, empty in defeat
move on it's all i could say but this bridge won't burn on its own
his keys won't leave her lock yet, he's inside
his keys won't leave her lock yet, he's inside
so i'm always waiting for time to go on
so i'm always wasting my time to move on
she knows the bed has been made but my love
swimming in circles wround my head when i sleep
now my tongue is tied and though all hope is letting us down
i can rest my guns and make room for defeat
oh i can rest my guns and make room for defeat
so i'm always waiting for time to go on
always wasting my time to move on
so i'm always breaking the line to go on
but i'm always waiting in line
so i'm always waiting for time to go on
so i'm always wasting my time to move on
always breaking the line to go on
but i'm always waiting in line
Track Name: Snakes and Spiders
i've grown tired of waking myself up
and only ever seeing an empty screen
on the days when things take up your time
oh stand back, this won't hurt - i've done this before
but this time, you stay put for however long it takes
to die
snakes and spiders won't hurt you now
but then you'll know
blood is only as thick as your latest obsession
sticks and stones won't undo your bones
'cause we all know you have elegant dreams
you've been wrong all your life so why start now
i've grown tired of picking myself up
and only if we suffer our unclaimed scars
will the axes fall asleep on time
oh stand back, this may hurt - i've done this before
but this time, you stay put for however long it takes
to die
snakes and spiders won't hurt you now
but then you'll know
blood is only as thick as your latest obsession
sticks and stones won't undo your bones
'cause we all know you have elegant dreams
you've been wrong all your life so why start now
you've been running away
out from the arms of a stranger
i'm still trying to catch you
Track Name: Stop Signs for the Broken Hearted
we've painted pictures of the things we've said and done
but somehow pictures don't talk back
the fact remains, there;s something wring with us
is there something wring with that, and if so
would you tell me your name, so i know?
just maybe i'll do the same, for all you know
and the weight gets harder the more you drown
and the weight gets stronger the more you push it down
and the red light gets longer the more stick around
the law is against us and the laws are clear
the more i save you, the more i disappear
so long, the news is bad
we don't think he'll be coming back himself
but don't mind me
i'm capabale of cutting in and wasting precious hours
here i go
would you tell me your name, so i know?
just maybe i'll do the same, for all you know
and the weight gets harder the more you drown
and the weight gets stronger the more you push it down
and the red light gets longer the more stick around
Track Name: Dots (We All Grow Toward the Sea)
connect the dots and get out of your mind
hard is all, hard is all i know
connect the dots and the sooner you will find
complications could all just disappear
connect the dots and the the darkness you will find
can all be lifted away and laid to rest
but don't let these winds blow through you
but don't let these waves come drown you
don't let these dots escape you
but don't let these winds blow through you
but don't let these waves come drown you
don't let these dots escape you
